Very Nice B,

I get only one pair of cardinals that will come to my home (feeders) and they seem to know when I've got the camera available. I have yet to geet a good shot of one of them. I just don't see enough of them to get many opportunities. This is a nice shot.

Thanks also, for being the first person to welcome me to the forums.



Did you use a Tamron 200-500 for this shot? Just curious.

Thanks, guys. Tom, yes, I used a Tamron 200-500 for this shot. BTW - you can check out other pics I've taken with this lens at www.pbase.com/bmullen . Any shot taken 350mm and up was taken with this lens.

Very nice shot! I used to have that same Tamron lens but was getting way too much chromatic abberation in background tree shots mainly,so I returned it and got the Nikkor 80-400mm VR lens and love it. Your Cardinal is very nice, keep up the good work. What kind of camera are you using and what settings? I almost always set my D50 to Aperture Priority, it seems to generate the best results for my outdoor bird shots.

I use the Rebel XT at various settings. I usually try to get it set up so I can shoot with apeture 8 or smaller if possible with lighting conditions and I usully use fill flash, too, for these small bird shots from a bird blind.

Woah - I like the 1st picture most (because of the tiny contrasting snow mount)
